What we do know is that massive amounts of carbon that has been locked away for millions of years has been released into the atmosphere the past 100 years. We do know that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas and its levels in the atmosphere have steadily increased. Also we know that the activity level of the sun does directly impact climate. What we don't know is the degree those factors are in play.

If you are suggesting the do nothing approach, then there is also a significant possibility the warming pattern will continue or even accelerate. When you consider that a large percentage of the world's population live in coastal communities and that vital materials, such as oil, are shipped from port to port, the rise in sea level of just a few feet would be catastrophic. While we can not control the sun, it would be foolhardy to continue business as usual, pinning all our hopes on yet another theory.

of course we should do everything and use technology that we have at hand to properly steward our planet.of course we should not be spewing all kinds of shit in the air...........for our health & safety! and that of future generations. but man made global warming is as real as fairy dust! and gore's carbon footprint is bigger than everybody on this site combined and then some.....gore is a bloviating fool!who don't even come close to practice what he preaches.mam made global warming is pure politics! the planet has been warming and cooling long before we got here and will do so afterwards as well! if 2 or 3 volcanos erupt at the same time, then what? the ice caps of mars and the moons of jupiter are melting as well.......maybe thats mans fault too......or is it just america and bush's fault?
